Magnolia and Basic Grey Halloween Card

I've had this cute Tilda by Magnolia stamp for a couple years now and realized I haven't used it! I was looking through my papers to use for this card and found this Basic Grey pack of 6 x 6 papers and look at what I found! These spooky trees with bats hanging in them, how perfect! The moon and bat stamp behind Tilda is also a Magnolia stamp. I ended up making this card 5 1/2 square so I could use all of this piece of designer paper and not ruin the look of the trees and bats. Then I had to do something on the inside since I used black card stock and my son has this cute bat punch so I added it in. I love this card, it was soooo hard to part with but I made it for someone and told myself from the beginning I couldn't keep it. I could always make another one :)

Owl Card

I saw this adorable card on the Hero Arts blog and I just had to make one like it! I made some changes as you can see but I just love this card! I used the same idea of the owl in the framed scalloped circle with a wood grain type stamp but the rest is somewhat different. I used a standard A2 sized card, some SU designer paper and the SU owl punch plus I added ribbon and a little tag to the bottom. The hello word stamp in the back of the owl is a Hero Arts stamp called Dictionary Greeting. I made it today and I was so excited about it I am going ahead and putting it on my blog right away - even using my iPhone to take the picture lol! I hope you like it too! Thanks for stopping by :)
